Engineering and Product Sponsorship Lead Conor La Grue reports on the build of BLOODHOUND's rear lower chassis:
It has been an incredibly exciting period for all the team as the rear lower chassis has been completed. This was the culmination of 30 months of effort by a huge number of individuals and companies and I have to start by saying - thanks Team! The build of BLOODHOUND SSC is utterly dependent on the huge value brought by our Product Sponsors that are helping bring this car to life.

Designing a 1000 mph car is a unique challenge. Where do we start? If we were designing a road car there would be no such problem.
I’m late with my blog this month, sorry! Being on the road increasingly as the build progresses creates time that’s hard to make productive! The face to face meetings are really great, but then the time in the car can be hugely frustrating. Yes I can catch up on phone calls, but you can’t make notes or reference documents during the call and that very likely leads to a follow up call or email once I’m back in the office.
